Today we take a closer look at the reliable slot receiver and potential day 3 selection Hunter Renfrow of Clemson and see if he is a fit for the 49ers.

The final days leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft have arrived, and with it are countless amounts of rumors, mock drafts, and quotes from teams’ front offices and coaches.

Gallery: Reliving 2018’s 1st round draft pick Mike McGlinchey

Ricky is a back with a gallery of the 49ers first round pick from a year ago

Mike McGlinchey was drafted by the San Franscisco 49ers in the 1st round of the NFL’s 2018 Draft. He was the 9th overall selection. My first time seeing McGlinchey was at the 49ers State of the Franchise in San Jose, California. The State of the union the 49ers hold for the 49ers faithful/empire/season ticket holders to discuss the upcoming season and improvements at Levis Stadium, not to mention get to see some...

One player on each side of the ball the 49ers should take a chance on Day 3

Judging by John Lynch’s history of day 3 picks, he’ll go all in on athletes

Who will be this years version of George Kittle? Geno Atkins? Kam Chancellor? Every year there is a couple of gems that fall during the draft for whatever reason, whether injury, size, or lack of position, and end up turning into a stud at the next level. Here are four players that will likely be selected on Saturday of the draft, but outperform the majority of players selected ahead of them.

Bet on athletes Ben...

49ers go nuts after the Sharks win

There is support for Bay Area sports

So if you watched hockey on Tuesday night, you saw a game that drained just about everyone. The Vegas Golden Nights lost in overtime to the San Jose Sharks, once again proving that hockey playoffs are the best in all of sports (yes, even football). The 49ers were in abundance at the game as seen below (thanks to our own Alex Tran):

49ers exercise DeForest Buckner's fifth-year option

The 49ers are officially keeping one of their best players in the fold. Unsurprisingly, the team has exercised the fifth-year option for defensive lineman DeForest Buckner, they announced in a tweet. An Oregon product, Buckner was drafted seventh overall by the 49ers back in 2016. Just last week we heard Buckner isn’t likely to land an extension this offseason, so he’ll have to wait a while before getting a new deal. That was a departure from a report that came out toward the end of this...

Making the case for Jachai Polite

Despite a difficult pre-draft process, Scott Geelan still thinks the 49ers should be taking a long, hard look at EDGE rusher Jachai Polite

As late as the morning of March 2nd, the day after the EDGE rusher measurements were taken at the Combine and before they tested, Jachai Polite was nearing first round pick lock status. If you watched any of the Florida Gators this season, it was hard to miss the dreadlocked speed demon flying off the edge. If you actively went looking for his film or his...

49ers Exercise Fifth-Year Option On star DT Deforest Buckner

Now, get that deal worked out

The San Francisco 49ers today announced they have exercised the fifth-year contract option on Pro Bowl DL DeForest Buckner for the 2020 season.

The 49ers originally selected Buckner (6-7, 300) in the first round (7th overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. Buckner has started in all 47 games he has appeared in throughout his three-year career, tallying 215 tackles, 21.0 sacks, eight passes defensed, three fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.

In 2018, he started...

Are there any free agent kickers you’d be fine replacing Gould with?

Gould might return in 2019, he might not. In the meantime, the 49ers need to get a backup plan in place

Robbie Gould requested his trade on Tuesday and that has the placekicker position as a huge question mark for the San Francisco 49ers. Only the 49ers could issue a franchise tag to a kicker and then have them threaten to sit. This does not mean Gould is out as a 49er, there are reports he could still come do the job for 2019, but it’s clear he’s none too happy with this franchise tag...

John Lynch finishes outside of the top 20 in NFL.com’s GM rankings

Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com ranked the top 25 general managers in the NFL. Due to some fresh faces, Rosenthal elected not to rank every team in the NFL. It didn’t take long to get to San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch. He came in at No. 22 on the list. Here’s what was said about him:

Two years of the John Lynch experience in San Francisco has contained a lot of swings and a lot of foul balls, if not outright misses. This ranking admittedly might be different if Jimmy Garoppolo...

NN Mailbag: 2019 NFL Draft, Nick Bosa versus Quinnen Williams, trade talk, and more

Addressing your 49ers comments, questions and concerns in our NFL Draft edition of the Niners Nation mailbag.

It’s not only draft week, but we’re just over 24 hours from the start of the 2019 NFL Draft. The San Francisco 49ers hold the No. 2 overall pick and the eyes of the NFL are upon the Arizona Cardinal at first-overall. Will they go with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray? Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa? We likely won't have that answer until commissioner Roger Goodell reads the...

Should the 49ers trade for Broncos’ CB Chris Harris Jr.?

The disgruntled cornerback wants $15 million a year

Late Tuesday night, Broncos’ Pro-Bowl slot CB Chris Harris Jr. requested a new contract or a trade, per Adam Schefter. John Elway and John Lynch are buddies. You know this will be a topic of conversation between the two over the next 48 hours. During his media availability on Monday afternoon, the San Francisco 49ers GM said that the cornerback is a position where you’re always looking to add talent and “when you have an opportunity...

Golden Nuggets: Draft one day away

Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet

Draft day is just a day away and the 49ers are waiting for the Arizona Cardinals to make their selection. For a couple of months, that pick was supposed to be QB Kyler Murray. In the last couple of weeks, there have been reports that the pick may be changing. If Kyler is selected, the 49ers would have their option of Nick Bosa or Quinnen Williams. But if the Cardinals...

49ers Sign veteran OL Ben Garland

Possible camp body or actual depth for the season? Time will tell.

The San Francisco 49ers today announced they have signed OL Ben Garland to a one-year deal.

Garland (6-5, 308) originally entered the NFL after signing with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted rookie free agent on April 30, 2010 out of the United States Air Force Academy. That year, the Broncos placed him on the Reserve/Military List to serve his two-year military commitment. He returned to the Broncos in 2012, spent two years...

49ers honoring Reggie Cobb for the upcoming NFL Draft by letting his son announce the second round pick

What an awesome gesture by the organization

Over the weekend, the San Francisco 49ers lost a great man in area scout Reggie Cobb. You could tell during John Lynch’s press conference on Monday that he was still bothered by the loss. It’d be impossible to go through this draft without a guy that has been with the organization for a decade.

The Niners already said they are keeping Cobb’s seat open at the draft table this week. Today the 49ers announced that Cobb’s son DeMarcus will...

Avoiding picking at No. 2 makes a lot of sense for the 49ers

If it were up to me, I wouldn’t pick there

If I were a smart gambling man, I’d go with the “strength in numbers” mantra the beloved Golden State Warriors have adopted. Why settle for one top pick at one needed position when there’s more than one hole to fill in the bigger picture? With desperate needs at an edge rusher, a receiving threat, defensive backs, and arguably a couple other positions, why be complacent with just one spot per round?

So Let’s Talk

I’m in the driver’s...

Robbie Gould wants out of San Francisco

Robbie Gould wants out. The 49ers kicker, who has been cuffed by the franchise tag, has halted all negotiations and refuses to sign a long-term deal with the club, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com hears.  Gould’s agent, meanwhile, says that if he reports at all, it will not be before the Niners’ Sept. 8 regular-season opener. At best, Gould appears set to be a summer holdout if he stays in SF. Gould, 36, was released after 11 years with the Bears, leading him to the Giants in 2016. Then, he...

Seattle Seahawks trade Frank Clark to Kansas City Chiefs

Moves are happening around the league!

The Seattle Seahawks agreed to trade their franchise player, defensive end Frank Clark, to the Kansas City Chiefs for a 2019 first-round pick, a 2020 second-round pick and an exchange of third-round picks this year, per Adam Schefter. The deal is worth 5-years, $105 million. Whew.

It will be tough for Seattle to replace a talent like Clark, but you can make a pretty strong argument that this works out better for the Seahawks from a money standpoint....

Report: K Robbie Gould requests to be traded

Gould has pulled his contract proposals

According to Adam Schefter:

In a turn of events, 49ers’ franchise kicker Robbie Gould has pulled his contract proposals that he sent to San Francisco and told the team he will not negotiate or sign a long-term deal with them, and he would like to be traded, Gould said Tuesday.

There are plenty of people that felt it was odd to franchise a kicker to begin with. This has been a bizarre situation this offseason. The San Francisco 49ers showing interest...
